I Didn't Understand

This song is by Elliott Smith and appears on the album XO (1998).


Thought you'd be looking for the next in line to love
Then ignore, put out and put away
And so you'd soon be leaving me
Alone like I'm supposed to be
Tonight, tomorrow and everyday
There's nothing here that you'll miss
I can guarantee you this
Is a cloud of smoke
Trying to occupy space
What a fucking joke
What a fucking joke


I waited for a bus to separate the both of us
And take me off far away from you
'Cause my feelings never change a bit
I always feel like shit
I don't know why, I guess that I just do
You once talked to me about love
And you painted pictures of
A Never-Neverland
And I could've gone to that place
But I didn't understand
I didn't understand
I didn't understand
